Everything can be put on a fast track and more effective if that thing is associated with technology. Technology has become the fourth important part of our life after air, water, and home. Technology in the field of medical sciences is the greatest weapon. A weapon to fight against diseases. Similarly, Dell Technologies has come forward with a new application.
Dell Technologies along with the Tata Trusts and Ministry of health and family welfare has developed a new application to track down non-communicable diseases. This initiative is for government primary health centers. India already deals with 63 percent mortality due to non-communicable diseases. Hypertension, stroke, diabetes, and heart disease account for the maximum share of these deaths. This issue was needed to be addressed and required support.
Health Minister, Dr. HarshVardhan commented that this new application will help authorities in dealing with non-communicable diseases. The app will offer proper monitoring, improved screening, and management of patients related to these diseases. This application will strengthen and support the already developed six apps for:
- Health officials of Government
- Auxiliary nurse-midwives
- ASHA workers
- Program managers
Three years back, Dell collaborated with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to launch the NCD IT system. Around 7.5 crore people have enrolled in this system. It is based on Dell’s Digital Lifecare. It has reached 496 districts across the 28 states and Union Territories.
People can be monitored and cared for by the doctors through the NCD IT system for NCD management. These doctors belong to the government’s primary, secondary and district hospitals. Patient’s records can be saved and altered as and when they visit the hospital. The IT system also helps in giving reminders and alerts.
Population-based screening guides health workers to screen the people of age above 30 years for the following diseases:

President and MD of Dell Technologies, Alok Ohrie, said that they want to help and impact 1 billion lives by the year 2030. He also quoted that technology can play a crucial part in changing the hectic lives of the people in today’s world.
